Today has been a bit of a busy day, getting home from being gone for a week and a half and catching up with the parents. 🙂 I actually made really good time though on my trip (sang at the top of my lungs for 3 hours straight) and was able to get home right at noon for lunch. I knew exactly what I wanted…..
New Chobani pomegranate yogurt (!!) with Kashi U cereal and blueberries. I missed my yogurt!!!!! I really liked this flavor but I think I need to try it again on its own because the cereal sort of overwhelmed it and if you wouldn’t have told me it was pomegranate I probably would have thought it was cherry or strawberry.
While I ate, I read:
I did hit the gym this afternoon….20 sweaty stairmaster minutes + 30 pushups + bicycle crunches. September 1st is my last day at the gym so I thought I should take advantage of it today!
Post-gym I had the other half of my Pro Bar—-
Loved this flavor because there were big chunks of melty chocolate chips in it! Put dark chocolate in anything and I am a happy camper. 🙂
Even though I love being with my girlfriends, it was nice to come home to quiet, Dexter and a glass of wine with my parents!
(I think he missed me. Obviously)
And my mom made a fantastic dinner! I’m going to miss living with my parents….my mom is the best chef ever!
Chicken schnitzel from The French Laundry cookbook along with sugar snap peas and some red rice with goat cheese and toasted almonds that I threw together at the end. It was delicious!
But the best was the homemade blueberry cake she made!
This was a recipe from the newspaper and was sooooooooo good. I rationalized having two pieces because technically I’m carbo-loading for my long run tomorrow 😉
Project for the night was THIS:
My closet is totally out of control and I just spent the past two hours completely cleaning it out. I have two huge bags of clothes to give to The Spring (a home for abused woman my mom and I support) and tons of trash…I can’t believe I kept some of the stuff that I had. Stacks upon stacks of old pictures from high school and college, old exams, papers, projects, notebooks…..it was crazy and I feel so much better.
I’m on a roll. Must continue cleaning and organizing my life before I lose steam. LONG run in the morning!!!!!
